An interviewer once asked why, as an earth-centered witch who's a Luddite a good part of the year, I stay so engaged online. The answer is simple: connection. My aim is to use the magic of poetry, and the poetry of magic, to help us all connect with the earth, ourselves, and each other.
Want to connect with me further? Help others to connect with me? Connect with others through me? Here are some ideas.
I use my Instagram account as a spiritual and poetic practice. I post meditations on photos that follow the Five Directions counterclockwise circle you will also find in many of my writings and teachings. If you want to get news and insights about what I've been up to, just click on the Highlights above --and you'll see that my bio also links to two new babies I am crazy about, special Instagram accounts for Poetry Witchery Workshops and Poetry Witch Ritual Theater .
On Twitter, mostly I tweet like the bird I am, sharing my own poems and other words and poems that move me. But since I participate in feminist/political Twitter as well as literary Twitter and spiritual Twitter, I don't entirely avoid the snark and do encounter the occasional troll. If you're on Twitter too, I would love your company and support!
On Facebook , you can connect with others from around the world in active community around my work. You can Like the Annie Finch Author page which sponsors events and communities and lively discussion; follow my personal profile; Like Poetry Witch Ritual Theater to follow our shows; and join several groups of wonderful people I hope you will love to meet: A Poet's Craft for working poets; American Witch for folks on the pagan path; Poetry Witches Community for all who are interested in learning the essence of my teachings, regardless of writing experience; and Annie Finch's Readers.
Film is one of my passions, and my Youtube Channel is one of my favorite online social spaces. Along with posting readings, musical settings, & interviews, I curate playlists (Amulets for Brave Women, Poetcraft, Witchy Living) edit and upload videos, and collect funky renditions of my poems (check out the dramatization of "Coy Mistress").
If you hang out on Vimeo, Tumblr, or especially Pinterest, you will find me there too, albeit in more embryonic form (I had a Pinterest,account that I loved and deleted by accident in 2015—long story. It would be wonderful to have your moral support as I build it back up!)
